After witnessing her parents’ constant
fighting, Desiree has decided she doesn’t do relationships.
Instead, she slakes her lust with a never-ending series of
one night stands. All that ends when Desiree makes a bet
with her two best friends, Andrew Gamble and Joshua Tully.
Each of them will remain abstinent, but whoever cracks first
will owe two week’s worth of wages. Three people. All of
them horny. Each willing to push the others to the end of
their sexual tension rope. Who will be the first to give
Tara S. Nicholas ramps up the heat in
the lust-riddled Gamble’s Game. The problem I
had with this story was not that all the characters had high
school level hormones, but that their maturity level
matched. Desiree’s unwillingness to be in a relationship
stemmed from an issue a ten second conversation could
resolve. The supporting characters were both clueless and
immature, which was a pity. The only character who held any
appeal for me was Gamble, but sadly Ms. Nicholas only took
very brief forays into his head. Still, while
Gamble’s Game was not for me, readers looking for a
story brimming with sexual tension that is ultimately
fulfilled in a M/F/M/F ménage a quatre will find what they
desire with this book.
